Customer Questions & Answers

Can I use this device to just measure water use from hose per day, week or over growing season?

Asked by: Anonymous
Not really: you need a flowmeter. This isn't accurate enough.

can the flowmeter used with gravity feed system?

Asked by: Anonymous
Although I have never tried to use it in a gravity feed system, I do know that using it with a restricted water flow (water faucet opened only a quarter) the flowmaster will not always shut off. Hope this helps. Blessings

In using the flowmeter water timer, how do you judge how much water to use in watering plants?

Asked by: Anonymous
Remember that this device meters water in total gallons. To determine how many gallons to set your flowmaster for your plants, initially set the flowmaster to 800 gallons, set your sprinkler up to water your plants, turn on the faucet. Once you are happy with the amount of water that has irrigated your plants, turn off the water and see what the flowmaster dial stays. If it is at say 600, then it took 200 gallons to correctly water your plants! All you have to do next time is set it at 200, turn on the water and forget about it! It wll shut off automatically. Blessings to you.

Flow Meter with Shut-off is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It did the job well I needed a timer to control a sprinkler from a somewhat restricted-access water spigot. Although this unit is made of plastic (including the threaded hose connectors) it is fairly heavy duty and appears to be sturdy. The control dial is ratcheted so you can't rotate it backwards, which is fine but it could benefit from a molded-in arrow reminding the user to only rotate it one way. Overall, it serves my purpose well.

Unlike other apparently similar products, this is a flow meter and not a timer. Thus, it will deliver a set amount of water over a time that varies with the water pressure. Other products run for a set time, even if the water is off.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not as good as I thought Placed on water spout and attached to hose...water leaked all over

Rated 2 out of 5 by from May work, but not at low flow rate This device attempts to measure the flow of water and shut off after a configured amount has been delivered. Unfortunately, it seems to need a rate of several gallons per minute, which doesn't satisfy my requirements. The package itself does not indicate this, other than "not recommended for low pressure drip systems."

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Eval of product Difficult to read timer/flow gauge as my outside spiquets are only 10 inches above ground so gauge is ~5 inches from ground.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MelnorFlow Meter with Shut-off The meter is easy to install but it didn't fulfill my expectations. I wanted this meter to be able to show how many gallons I was using when attached to my hose, and the online description gave me the indication this was a function of the meter, but it isn't. The meter only lets you set how many gallons to use at a single time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted This flowmeter works by volume, not time. Just turn the dial and it starts flowing, then will shut off after the volume is reached, no buttons, no batteries.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed Unit The inlet hose bib ring/collar split open spuing water over my backyard for at least 3hrs before I discoved it. Plastic ring not well engineered to handle water pressure. Could prove to cause a real mess if it happens at night at about 30 gallons a minute.I bought it for the hose I use to fill the pool, I needed a reliable unit. This one lasted less than a month. All of the previous ones by Nelson, Melnor or Orbit I have used eventually failed, usually by leaking out the bottom of the unit. The older units lasted longer, about 3- 4 yrs, than the current Chinese made ones.
